Hello!  Can you believe it’s September already?  The year seems to be flying by.  But yes, it’s September 1, and the start of a new month means we have a different hostess for our challenges at CAS Colours & SketchesKaren has come up with some fun ideas for the month, and she’s starting us off with a color challenge.

I tossed a few different ideas around in my head before settling on one.  I ended up going pretty darn simple, stamping a line of each of the three colors and then over stamping it with a sentiment in black.  A black mat and a card base in the lightest of the challenge colors later, and ta-da!  My card was done.  I considered adding a few rhinestones but decided against it.  Since this card will be going into my stash for Send a Smile 4 Kids I thought the card is more gender-neutral without the sparkle.  When I was taking the picture of the card I realized that I could have made the sentiment stand out a bit more if I had heat embossed it, but it was too late to do that with this card.  Maybe if I do another one I’ll try that.
